    Sunday Snippet – CUP OF SUGAR – Somebody Has Been Spying

    Welcome to another Sunday Snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    This week’s snippet is from CUP OF SUGAR, my new hot contemporary. This bit follows shortly after last week’s. (There’s a pretty funny scene in between, but it’s too long for the Sunday Snippet. Click here to read more.) In today’s bite-size excerpt, Nia has accepted her neighbor’s offer of a lift after her car died, and she’s about to get into Conn’s truck for a six-hour drive to her parents’ house. Maybe. 😉

    CUP OF SUGAR by Karla DoyleNia’s hands shook as she locked the house. But the shaking had nothing on the wild thumping in her chest when she stepped out her back door and came face to face with her hunky neighbor. The guy she’d purposely been avoiding since she took possession of her house back in April. The man who’d been one half of a committed couple when she put the offer on this place, but who was most definitely single by the time she moved in. There were more stray women around his house than there were stray cats. Of course, his massive dog kept the felines at bay. Whereas Conn’s massive everything attracted the women.

    And yes, she did mean everything — he really ought to install blinds in his bathroom.

    Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…

    For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.

    Sunday Snippet – CUP OF SUGAR – At Your Service

    Welcome back for another Sunday snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    This week’s eight sentence excerpt is from my brand-new release, CUP OF SUGAR, and follows shortly after last week’s snippet. Conn and Nia have been neighbors for about eight months, the duration of which Nia has shyly avoided Conn — though he’s aware that she has been watching him do all kinds of things.

    The story opens on New Year’s Eve, when Conn arrives home to find Nia sitting in her car, which is not running. Here we go…


    Cup of Sugar cover“Everything okay, Nia?”

    “My car won’t start.”

    Chalk this one up as a late Christmas present from the universe. He motioned at the passenger door. She nodded in response, so he opened it, stuck his head and shoulders inside. “I’m at your service, I can jump you or give you a ride.”

    She squeaked—actually squeaked—and the frost melted from her expression. Oh, she was still pink in the cheeks, the color just didn’t look cold-weather induced.

    Sunday Snippet – CUP OF SUGAR – Eight Months

    Welcome! It’s time for the Sunday Snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

    Today’s eight sentences are the beginning of my upcoming release, CUP OF SUGAR, a hot contemporary romance I’ve been told is sexy-sweet and my funniest book yet. I hope you’ll enjoy Conn & Nia’s romance as much as I did while writing it. ♥

    CUP OF SUGAR by Karla DoyleWell, look at that—Nia’s little Chevy, its lights on, but not running. Perfect timing.

    Conn pulled into his half of the joined driveway and parked beside her car. For the eight months since she’d moved in next door, the twenty-four feet of asphalt separating their houses had been almost impassable. Whenever he got close to crossing the distance, something or somebody got in the way. Overtime on the jobsite or a time-consuming sideline project he couldn’t afford to pass up, phone calls from his family that he had to answer. His pissed-off ex dropping by to unleash her rage. Yeah, that last one had particularly sucked.
